View Full Version : Game installation problem.

24-02-2004, 09:24 PM
I have two games. One is supposed to work on XP. The other possibly.
When I try and install them I get this error message for both of them.

The win16 subsystem was unable to enter protected mode, Dosx.exe must be in your autoexec.nt and present in your path.

Dosx.exe is mentioned in my autoexec.nt file and dosx.exe is in my path.

Dosx.exe is actually in c:\ c:\windows and c:\windows\system32.

What do I do to fix this problem and install the two games?
